Herb Pork Roast

2 tablespoons Herbs de Provence
1 tablespoon onion powder
1 tablespoon brown sugar
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon minced garlic
2 1/2 pounds pork roast, rinsed and patted dry (Serves 8)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
    In a small bowl, stir together herbs de Provence, onion powder, brown sugar, olive oil, lemon juice and garlic. Place the pork roast in a shallow roasting pan.  Season with salt and pepper and then rub with the herb mixture.
    Place roast in oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees F. Roast for 30 minutes per pound, or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer. (Roast will continue to cook up to 170 degrees F out of the oven.) Remove from oven, cover with foil and let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serves 8.

     My suggestion is if you are having more than 8 people, buy 2 separate roasts to cut down on the cooking time.
